This pair of large stone stags on pedestals is highly realistic. Hand-carved by a master mason out of Italian stone, these deer are truly remarkable.
Our deer are situated in a lodged position, meaning they are laying down. Notice the ornately carved hair around the neck. This is indicative of a European red deer, as many subspecies of this deer typically grow neck manes in the autumn. The eyes, nose and mouth of the deer have been expertly carved, giving the deer a semblance of life. Even the cloven hooves and the multi-pronged antlers show an appreciation for detail. Perhaps the most impressive feat is the way the mason carved skeletal features, such as the knee joint in the bent leg and the spinal column slightly protruding from each deer’s back.
Each deer lays on top of a stone pedestal. The dado section of the pedestal has been carved with rectangular panels that have canted corners. There is stepped molding on the plinth and the cornice.
Place these lovely stone statues in a garden or at the base of set of stairs. Regardless of where they are placed, they will most certainly be a focal point of any outdoor display.
